Gifted & Talented - Parent / Guardian Referral
The Bradley Beach School District has multiple measures in place that should identify all students eligible for the gifted & talented program. These measures include grade averages (from previous years), standardized test scores, i-Ready assessment scores, DRA scores, and teacher nominations/evaluations.
However, parents/guardians should complete this form if they believe their child is performing well above grade level and would like their child’s achievement and performance to be reviewed to determine eligibility for these services.

What are your main reasons for referring your child to the gifted and talented program? Please share your insights about his/her talents, abilities, and learning needs. (Please note: Teachers are expected to challenge every student according to his/her abilities. Therefore, a desire to have your child challenged in NOT a reason for referral.)
